Two brothers were assaulted early Monday morning during a home invasion, according to the Pulaski County Sheriff's Office.

Investigators said Jimmy Rowland, 48 and Timothy Wells, 51, both of Burnside, were asleep in their home on Heath Road, when someone came in through an unlocked door and assaulted the two men with a blunt object.

Both men were taken to UK Hospital in Lexington.

Investigators said Wells was treated for a head injury and released on Tuesday.  Rowland was still in the hospital on Wednesday where he was being treated for more severe head injuries and two broken arms.

No arrests had been made as of Wednesday.

Investigators said the motive for the home invasion and assault was robbery and that the victims were missing a small amount of cash.

Anyone with information about this case is asked to call the Pulaski County Sheriff's Office at 606-678-5145.
